I just love mid century purses made from clear lucite. However, although I like all lucite bags, it is the ones with thick and carved lucite frames that I adore. This bag by Josef epitomizes everything that I adore about lucite framed bags from the 1950's. The fact that it was created by Josef is an extra plus since Josef is one of the premier designers of that time. He produced high quality bags,mostly beaded although I have never seen Josef delve into lucite. Lastly, this bag is a luxury item and it has been monogrammed by its original owner in gold letters. This is something I have never seen before. The bag is on the large side and it fans outwards on the bottom creating "wings". The fabric is a soft silk that is dyed a deep black. There is very tight ruching at the top resulting in pleats. There are folds throughout the bag. The frame has an art deco vibe. The lucite is clear ad very thick and chunky. Each side of the frame is almost 1/2" thick. The lucite is reverse carved with deep grooves throughout. The frame is very rounded. The effect can be likened to a sunburst. It is amazing and I just love the "see thru" quality. There are two silk carry ribbons with a drop of 5" to the top of the frame and 8" to where they begin. Once opened, there is a deep rose colored satin fabric. There are two sturdy hinges to open and close the bag. There are two open slip pockets and a thin one for lipstick. "Bags by Josef" is printed inside in gold letters. Also monogrammed is "Gusta B. Atz" whom I assume is its original owner. There is a small coin folder included inside. The inside is very clean. There are a few pen marks. The bag measures 10 1/2"w x 9"h x 2"d. The bag is in great condition with minor indications of age or wear. The size of this bag will hold all of today's necessities. However, it is a vintage treasure and very retro in appearance. Condition: Excellent Vintage COndition
